William Reilly

I am passionate about preaching relevant, scripture based sermons that deepen faith, honor God, and proclaim the Gospel.

During my time at St. Paul, I preached weekly in two age-targeted worship services. Additionally, I preached regularly in the contemporary service and occasionally in the main service which aired as a live stream and broadcast on a local television station. At Edgewood Church, I was a regular part of the preaching rotation and preached weekly during my time as interim pastor. Since then I have been supply preaching at various churches, including a worship service attended by a US senator, US congressman, and President Jimmy Carter. I have been a guest preacher at several churches, retreats, camps, and university chapel services. I also served as the commencement speaker at a high school graduation. Below are a few of my recent sermons.
